    Red Sea by Martine Micallef

    Not good. The first thing I noticed was a disgusting BO note that permeates the top notes and hangs around through the scent's lifespan. There has to be cumin in here somewhere, and a large dose of it at that. The cumin mixes with a dirty rose note, and cinnamon creating an odd, uncomfortable combination. Iris, sandalwood and musk join the party later on, finishing out the scent's development. This part is more pleasant, but the cumin remnants spoil the party. Longevity, projection and sillage are all average here. Bottom line is this is not a good scent, IMO. I strongly prefer other scents in the "Seas" collection, Yellow Sea in particular.
